Who We Are

At our dental office, we are committed to providing our patients with compassionate and professional dental care of the highest standards in a comfortable and relaxed environment. We utilize the most current dental technologies and techniques to help you achieve a smile that you can be proud of. At our practice, you will receive individualized treatment based on a careful diagnosis of your dental health.

Dr. Milana Levin

I was born and raised in Belarus and moved to Canada in 1989. Edmonton has been my home ever since. I graduated from the University of Alberta Faculty and Medicine and Dentistry in 2000 with a combined BSc, DDS degrees. Upon completion of my studies, I returned to the school to become a part time clinical instructor while working full time in private practice.

I enjoy dentistry because, to me, it is a perfect combination of art, science and technical skills. It integrates cutting-edge technologies such as computer-aided design and digital imaging while allowing for old-fashioned human interaction. It is ever-evolving and challenging allowing me to continue learning and improving.
I am grateful for all the wonderful patients that have placed their trust in me over the years, they are what makes my career most rewarding.

Dr. Ann Macdonald

I am an alumni of the University of Alberta where I received a BSc. in 1991 and a DDS in 1993, and am a member of the Edmonton and District Dental Society, the Alberta Dental Association and the Canadian Dental Association. It has been very enjoyable and rewarding practicing a full spectrum of general dentistry in Edmonton for over 19 years. With the goal of improving and challenging myself, I regularly attend in depth continuing education courses to provide up to date technology and treatment to patients.I feel very fortunate to have been able to provide treatment to so many wonderful people over the years and am grateful that I can help to improve their health and quality of life. In 2006, we opened the Groat Plaza Dental office with the hopes of providing comprehensive dental care in a professional and compassionate environment.

Who We Are

We are a dental practice devoted to restoring and enhancing the natural beauty of your smile using conservative, state-of-the-art procedures that will result in beautiful, long lasting smiles!

High Standards

A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide the quality dental services our patients deserve. We provide comprehensive treatment planning and use restorative and cosmetic dentistry to achieve your optimal dental health. Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.

Education & Prevention

As a practice, we are true believers that preventive care and education are the keys to optimal dental health. We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”. That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease. Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.

Uncompromising Safety

Infection control in our office is also very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the Canadian Dental Association (CDA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

Training & Expertise

As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy. To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care. Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.

A Positive Experience

Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success. We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.

We thank you for allowing us to take care of your dental needs and look forward to serving you.

Make an appointment today…..we’ll give you a reason to smile!
